AIBUDAO by Eric So
and finding the true meaning of creativity" - Eric So
So says Hong Kong designer Eric So, as he teases a figure-form with acclaimed Chinese contemporary artist Ai Wei Wei, to be presented by MAD Museum of Art & Design and debut at the coming Art Stage Singapore (Jan 24-27, 2013), the name for it is "AIBUDAO", and it possesses a roly-poly body, like a "Bu4 Tao3 Wong1" (I can't find an English equivalent to that phrase, likened to "a doll that can never fall down").
... or it could be "Ai4 Bu4 Dao3"? A phonetic change on the "Dao", which could also mean "fall", loosely translated to "Ai Cannot Fall"? hahaha interesting times!
Look for the full figure at Booth C2-02, Expo & Convention Centre Basement 2 - Hall D, E & F at Marina Bay Sands. Made with Papamamason, you can check in with the Facebook events page here.
